Before there was the family, there was just the business. From the minds of New York Times best-selling authors Carl Weber and Eric Pete comes the game-changing prequel to their blockbuster Family Business saga.
Travel back to a small Southern town where, before there was Duncan Motors, there were the Duncan brothers: Louis, aka Sweet Lou, a lover of ladies and life and a man you did not want to cross; Lawrence, aka Larry, a screw-up as attracted to trouble as it was to him; and Lavernius, better known as LC, the soft-spoken college boy who simply wanted to sell cars.
But the Duncan brothers weren't alone at the crossroads. There was also the mysterious and seductive Chippy, a woman who saw a way out of her circumstances and dared to take it. Witness what changed the course of their lives when ambitions intersected with opportunity that came calling one day in the form of a man named Alejandro Zuniga. Welcome to the familiar, but as you've never seen it before.
The full voice cast includes Alonso Riggs, Julian Durant, and Neicy Bethea.

LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
I really enjoyed this book. I love Carl Weber's mind and the way that he lets you get to know his characters. The narration of this book was wonderful, they had the right cast for this one. I loved the Family Business series and this book helps you get to know and respect who LC and Chippy are. This is a must read I would have never imagined Chippy's past being the way that it was. I am glad that these two found each other and were able to build an empire. This is the beginning, how it all started.
Each narration had me visually there during each reading. It was given so much life.
Ms Shirley, b/c she she seem like one of those old school women who made you laugh, but had that personality also that you better not messvw/ and LC he was the youngest, yet seem to be more mature and friendliest.
Each narrator was able to potray the other characters in their time of reading

When You Come Across
I loved this book. I loved how he used different narrators. This book really set the stage for the other books in this series. I look forward to reading/listening to more to come.
I really enjoyed this book! This book captured and held my interest throughout. So much so that I am just download the first Family Business book in the series. I also loved each of the narrators. They really made the characters come to life.
My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
DON'T YOU DO YOUR BUSINESS IN MY MOUTH!!
Even more sex in this one, since a whore house is a main location for the story. The only thing that kept me listening, is that it shows how everything got started. The number one First Family story is a lot better. This is a unique series, but start with The Family Business book 1. Expect bad language and the things whores do.
The multiple performance is a big plus
I always enjoy Carl Webber's books. This one was very entertaining. Love the way it gave a background on the life of LC & Chippy.. The audio readers were very believable. Big Shirley's voice really made me believe. Love the series and will continue to support. 👏🏾Just downloaded the audio version of Paris. Can't wait. 😊😊
Those Duncan's are Fierce! Dang Lou..he hangs like that whew!
Chippy! Now I understand why LC tells the children that their mother is the real "OG".
They brought so much excitement to each character. Also, it was great hearing some of the familiar voices from the Family Business audiobooks.
Watch out for that back horse...
LC and Chippy were truly made for each other. What an amazing and powerful family..
Very engaging. The narration helped the book to come alive. I can't wait to read the next one in the series.
